iGolf4VETS is about inspiring, educating & equipping our veterans with knowledge to maintain a healthy mindset plus lifestyle.
Being Veteran led, our vision is to inspire, educate and equip Veterans from all backgrounds suffering from various mental health disorders, and thoughts of suicide. We’d like to inspire through interaction with other veterans who can relate.
We’d like to educate through multiple programs that specialize in Veteran specific needs, and we’d equip our Veterans through the game of golf. Golf teaches how to create, and hold focus during trying times. We learn to accept the uncontrollable. It also teaches patience and problem solving. All things that are needed for struggling veterans to cope in the Civilian world.
At iGolf4VETS, it is our mission to provide Veterans and family members a platform to cope with Mental Health Disorders and Suicide Prevention through the sport of golf.
